Young professionals have a wide variety of member benefits and opportunities available to them through IEEE membership. These member benefits are intended to help young professionals grow professionally, enhance technical knowledge, and become involved in community.
IEEE has members across the world, in near and far regions. Get connected with a local or regional activity for young professionals, develop your professional network close to home, and become a part of the IEEE engineering and scientific community.
IEEE GOLD member benefits geared towards community involvement include STEP program events, humanitarian initiatives, and local GOLD affinity groups.
IEEE GOLD has affinity groups around the world. Nearly 50% of IEEE Sections have a GOLD affinity group, which means that IEEE GOLD members have local community representation. Many GOLD Affinity Groups maintain local GOLD Web sites, Facebook pages, and LinkedIn groups. Look for your Region or Section’s GOLD groups and get involved to enhance your IEEE member experience.
IEEE, ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers), and Engineers Without Borders USA have launched EngineeringforChange.org, an online platform that provides engineers, technologists, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and local community advocates the tools to collaboratively address humanitarian and global development challenges. Members of the Engineering for Change community – working together – will design, apply, and share knowledge to develop technical solutions for humanitarian and global development challenges in local communities throughout the world.
